Nokia Lumia 810 lands on T-Mobile US with Windows Phone 8

T-Mobile US has announced that it will be selling a variant of the Nokia Lumia 820, which will be called the Lumia 810. The smartphone will be available within the next few weeks, according to the mobile phone operator.

The phone is likely to include a slightly different system-on-chip without LTE, as it will work on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ data network. T-Mobile has also confirmed that it will be selling the HTC Windows 8X, a Windows Phone 8 smartphone with a better configuration.

The Lumia 820 and the Lumia 920 were launched at the beginning of September (opens in new tab) and will be available in early November (opens in new tab), with both handsets exclusively available on AT&T.

(opens in new tab)As expected, the phone will come with interchangeable covers and optional wireless charging capabilities, an 8-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Nokia Music, Nokia Maps and City Lens, a 4.3in 800 x 480 display and a 1.2-megapixel front facing camera.

It will also be one of very few Windows Phone handsets to come with a microSD card slot. For a comprehensive comparison between Nokia’s main Windows Phone smartphones, check out our article about the Lumia 820, the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 900 (opens in new tab).
